If you’re familiar with Hanna & Barbera’s Wacky Races (a 17 episode television series produced in 1968, with each episode featuring 11 colorful race cars zipping through 2 different locales in the United States), you’d be familiar with the LEGO-built Mean Machine, along with the driver, Dick Dastardly and his sidekick, Muttley.
This creation by AFOL who is known as Fredfern1950s_5323 on the LEGO Ideas website measures approximately 30cm in length, and it’s able to seat both Dick (in front), and Muttley (at the back), just like in the cartoon. This build, in our opinion, certainly has the look-and-feel of the car and characters we’ve seen in the cartoon back then.
Here are more close-up images of this build for your visual pleasure:
